Jacksonians, here are local authors K & D Bear! If you liked The Clan of the Cave Bear, I bet you will like We Brothers Immortal. If you are a fan of Tolkien, you will recognize certain elements in this book. Anyone who likes science fiction or fantasy at all will enjoy the adventure contained in the pages of We Brothers Immortal. This story is filled with lots of action as well as some provocative concepts you will want to discuss with other book lovers. Be warned that the books are unedited and self-published. If you haven’t read anything self-published, this is a pretty painless introduction, with fewer glaring grammatical issues than most. It has a slow start, but that changes fairly quickly.
The Bear brothers do a good job of introducing the main characters and their lives with fun dialogue and some great descriptions. Several times I was surprised by directions the plot took, and the twin brothers often do things which are unexpected and occasionally illogical (kind of like teenagers everywhere). Each twin finds a mate and takes steps toward maturity until their lives look pretty settled. Then they make choices that throw everything, even whole communities, into upheaval and uncertainty. Just when I would think I had the plot figured out, it would take a twist into new territory, even new genres, and throw me off.
This first book in the series ends on a cliffhanger, and the authors refuse to give any hints. (No matter how much I begged!) JDL owns all of their books, and the second book is called Immortal Gates (currently checked out to me). I recommend all of their books based on this first one. ~ Tessa April 2015 3.5 out of 5 stars
